Question for project managers: what is the best online tool to use for creating a reference library for project standards (hours, budget, activities)...for example, a development team needs to create a product. This product has been created before but it's a new team. They need to pull the steps, hours, and budget, but what online tool is best for creating this as a reference, and not like a working template, etc. ?
A great idea is 1% of the work. Execution is the other 99%. In this course, we’ll teach you how to conduct market analysis, create an MVP and pivot (if needed), launch your business, survey customers, iterate your product/service based on feedback, and gain traction quickly.

Todd -  I see they have all the buzzwords (Agile, Kanban, Scrum), but do they have this kind of library for creating task standard references? 

Have you used it, what is your experience?

Johnathan, try celoxis.

The downside is that it's very bad when it comes to collaboration.

I'd say that Proofhub is a great online tool for managing projects.

I have worked on JIRA, ZOHO project and Redmine.

And I guess JIRA is one of the best tool where you can set Project tickets, assign hours and developer/tester. Also you can check the ticket life cycle time to time with hour tracking.

The best thing with JIRA is, it provides you APIs to work with some of the other tool useful in SDLC. And I am really not sure but it provides the Gantt Chart for project scheduling also that is really helpful while you have number of tickets and tight project schedule.

Roadmap https://ppmroadmap.com/ works as a stand-alone or integrates with Basecamp, GitHub or JIRA. Run planned vs. actual reports on time or budget, forecast resources, etc.
